Mär is a very old-fashioned german word and means "fary tale", or just any kind of made up story. You know, the kind of stories most of the characters in that anime origin from.
They used the "Ä" so I guess its supposed to be german...

In terms of the Fate/stay Night, I think the name isn't bad at all. I thought the name was a bit creative in some way because it sort of seemed like they wanted it to stay a fated night.

Ahh, if felt to me that a bunch of japanese guys wanted to use english words but didn't understand them very well. I guess I might be mistaken, especially since the whole unlimited blade works speech is not nearly as confusing, just sounds funny with a japanese accent =)

I do hold in the opinion that Bastards!! is horrible as a name.

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha is also just terribly misleading. Nevermind the lyrical part, to what 'mahou' is one really supposed to think about regarding the White Devil?

Eh?
I don't really get what you're trying to say here.

Not only is your grammar off, but the usage of "mahou" in the title is quite obvious.

I doubt there are (m)any words one could substitute to have the phrase make sense.
Even "extent" and a second noun would require an object following the "about".

Maybe because she uses magic?

Mahou shoujo... magical girl... which is exactly what she is. I don't see how that is misleading at all.

魔法 = Mahou = magic

魔法少女 (Mahou Shoujo) is literally "magic young girl", localized in English: "magical girl"

Moyashimon - When I first read it, I though that it would be some kind of digimon-like series, and I still don't quite know what the title means...

Sci-fi Harry - The series gives a perfectly fine explanation about the strange title, but it'll definitely look weird for someone who hasn't seen it.

Golgo 13 - I think that speaks for itself.

Tokyo Marble Chocolate - Okay, I get the Tokyo-part, but where do the marbles and the chocolate come from?

Heroic Age - First, you're lead to believe that this series is about an age of heroes, but no: the main character is just called Age.

Soul Link - This one just feels randomly thrown together at the last minute.

I flashed trough the biggest and one of the only Manga selling bookstores in sweden when I saw
NÄR I mean maybe it Ä looks really cool to some young children, but anyway.
I dont know why but NÄR, and that its in sweden makes it such a joke becouse NÄR
(När) means 'When' and it just dont make any sense

Okay, this post was wrong looking deeper into it, its spelled with M, anyway I might not remember the title,
but MÄR makes even less sense.

I have no intention to revive bring this thread from dead but take a look on this site...

The Japanese folks take this discussion seriously! Since I don't understand Japanese, I hope someone else will translate that discussion just like how they translate this thread there...

This was posted a lot in there:

Quote:
Why would you put the main characters name in the title?: (e.g. Naruto)
-Superman
-Batman
-Spiderman
-etc.

What is a "PG movie" (PG?) and what movie would that be?
If you werent allowed to ever use any name anyone else used before on >something<, artists would be out of names pretty fast.
